  • Kelly Keegan Averts Malicious Punishment and Assault Charges against Childcare Worker

    Charge(s): 

    When a childcare worker reacted to a young child choking and accidentally caused bruising on the child, an investigation was initiated. The client faced potential charges of Gross Misdemeanor Malicious Punishment of a Child and Misdemeanor Fifth Degree Assault. Kelly Keegan contacted the investigator and prosecutors reviewing the case, convincing them that this was an unfortunate result of an emergency incident and that they should not prosecute her client. The Olmsted County Attorney’s Office agreed and did not pursue criminal charges.

    • Case Type: Malicious Punishment, Assault
    • County: Olmsted
    • Outcome: Charges Declined
  • Father Accused of Harming Child Avoids Prosecution and CHIPS Petition

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly Keegan’s client was accused of Malicious Punishment and Assault when doctors discovered his baby daughter had a fracture in her leg. An investigation was initiated by the Wright County Sheriff’s Office, Wright County Social Services, and the Wright County Attorney’s Office. After communications with these agencies, the investigation shifted from the Kelly’s client to the baby’s daycare provider, who was watching the baby before the injuries were discovered. Ultimately, the agencies closed their investigations into Kelly’s client and declined to pursue both a CHIPS Petition and criminal charges.

  • Kelly Keegan Clears Criminal Charges from Client’s Record

    Charge(s): 

    Nearly ten years prior, Kelly’s client was charged by the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office with multiple counts of Felony Terroristic Threats. Having represented himself at trial, the client was acquitted of all counts by the jury. Years later, the client was arrested in Ramsey County for Misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct. That charge was later dismissed. Even though neither of these cases resulted in convictions for the client, they both continued to create issues for him. Kelly petitioned for expungements of records relating to both cases, including their arrests. Both expungements were granted. Her client was thus able to finally put these two incidents behind him.

    • Case Type: Expungement
    • County: Ramsey, Hennepin
    • Outcome: Expunged
  • Charges Avoided for Son Managing Mother’s Accounts

    Charge(s): 

    The Wright County Sheriff’s Office initiated an investigation into Kelly’s client for Felony Exploitation of a Vulnerable Adult, accusing him of misappropriating his mother’s money. Kelly worked with the detective on the case to demonstrate that her client was the executor of his mother’s estate, and that the funds had not been spent, but moved into a different account. This information was then passed along to the Wright County Attorney’s Office, who declined to press charges against Kelly’s client.

    • Case Type: Felony Exploitation of a Vulnerable Adult
    • County: Wright

  • Kelly Keegan’s Client Receives Pardons for Three Convictions

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly Keegan’s client had three convictions for Fifth Degree Possession of a Controlled Substance, all stemming from a period in his life where he was an addict. Over fifteen years later, he was rehabilitated, working in drug and alcohol treatment centers to help others make the same transformations. His convictions, however, prevented him from progressing in his career. Kelly offered a pardon as a possible solution. She initiated a thorough investigation of his background, drafted his application, and prepared him for his Pardon Board hearing. The efforts were successful: the client received his pardons, and all three convictions were vacated.

    • Case Type: Pardon
    • County: Ramsey, Washington
    • Outcome: Pardoned
